cheers. Not bad. All the stuff was bought second hand + i got facelift front and rear bumpers & facelift wing mirror casings. The guy selling them was fitting an AMG kit to his car so i was lucky to get the whole lot in 1 go. Unfortuantly they were from a silver car and mine is Azurite Blue so I had to respray which cost a bit in paint, but MUCH cheaper than the new parts.

only problem upon picking them up the passenger skirt was badly damaged. looked like a huge hole had been made at some point. it had been repaired (not too well) but i rubbed it all down and re-repaired it and got a very good finish.

attached is a few pics on how I recieved the skirts.

Hello,

Resurrecting an old thread, however I am in the process of adding face-lift skirts and bumper ends to my pre face-lift CLK.

I have a question regarding the five holes located underneath of the car, on each side, into which fasteners that retain the side-skirt should be inserted. Are these holes existing on pre-facelift cars or they need to be drilled out?

I have done a face-lift on a W124 saloon a couple of years ago and the holes that hold the skirts on the underneath of the car required drilling for that model. Not sure on the W208 however.
